Windows phone 8 App please

Status: New Idea

Patiently waiting for a WP8 app. The desktop Windows 8 app is superb and would love to see this brought to Windows Phone. This is the only think keeping me from making the switch from Android to WP. Unfortunately the WP version is quite slow (especially with scrolling and magazines). As of now the only good ebook software on WP is Kindle which I do not enjoy, unfortunately my wife is forced to buy though them as it is all that is available on her Windows Phone.

Seriously, when is this app coming out for WP8?

Given Microsoft's investment in Nook Media, it is truly mind-boggling that a Nook app for the Win 8 phone is still not available!

I agree that we, loyal BN customers, need a Nook App for Windows Phone 8. With no information if this is even in the works, I'm leary of adding to my Nook Library and wondering if I just shouldn't switch over to Kindle so I can read on my phone. Like I did for YEARS on my Android phone.

I found this crazy as well. What exactly is B&N doing? Seems like they are missing a LOT of opportunities. I have a WP8 as well and the Kindle app works great on it. NO Nook app. :smileysad: Also, they have a HUGE opportunity to use the in-stire experience to their advantage and they simply haven't done enough.They offer a limited number of books with that buy one, get on deal but what about having pop-up coupons and discounts when you walk in? Oh and whatever happened to those free goodies from the cafe? Like I said, a lot of missed opportunities..  I'm pretty sure Amazon wouldn't miss them with their Kindle. That app is on everything.

Based on what I can find Windows still has a smaller share of the smartphone market than even Blackberry (3.5% vs 4.5%) and B&N discontinued support for a BB app a couple years ago.  I guess they feel a market segment that small isn't worth supporting.

Yep, I've started buying Amazon titles to read on my phone because I can't get my vast Nook library on my phone. B&N is making a Kindle fan out of me.
